    Hi Rebecca, I love your tutorials. Any tutorial on CPE wrting may be coming up?.?.

    Friday, January 3rd 2014

    Talking about my career has always been my worst nightmare.

    To begin with, I wasn’t familiar enough with all the expression necessary to describe/mention the processes the person may go through during their career development.

    Now, I feel I’m ready to do so. But first thing first, let me go over the lesson.

    Many thanks for this great lesson Rebecca.

    Take care!

    Sunday, May 18th 2014

    To teach us would be correct. After prepositions like IN, the “verb+ing” form is required. Infinitive is correct in that case.

When an employee is sick and don’t go to work ,what term is used for?off to sicky?

Tuesday, March 11th 2014

Hi Mahroo,
The expression usually used in this context is:
( day off sick / Off sick). the word can be also used in different idioms. Here are some examples:
*It leads to stress, burn-out, people going off sick and problems with family life.
*Most employees too scared of redundancy since recession hit to take time off sick.
*Number of sick days taken each year has fallen….
